I was hesitant to start this, and figured for awhile that it would be one of those books that maybe I’d get around to or maybe I wouldn’t. It just didn’t seem like something I’d enjoy – it seemed too soft, or too postmodern, or too feel-good, or too based in hedonism, or too surface oriented. Wha...

This review is sung by Freddy Mercury to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody. Is this a fiction? Is this just fantasy? Not just a narrative Of Czech infidelity. Reader four eyes Look onto the page and read I'm just a Prague boy, I’ve sex with empathy Because I'm easy come, easy go A little high, little low Any S...

There is probably one novel that is the most responsible for the direction of my post-graduation European backpacking trip ten years ago which landed me in Prague for two solid weeks. Shortly before my friend Chad and I departed, he mailed me a letter and directed me to get my hands on a copy of...

Kundera is an unconventional writer, to say the least. If you are looking for fully fleshed characters or a smooth plot, The Unbearable Lightness of Being is not for you. Kundera merely uses plot and characters as tools or examples to explain his philosophy about life, and that is what this novel...

ΚΟΥΝΤΕΡΑ ΣΕ ΑΓΑΠΑΩ Και θα σε αγαπάω απο δω και πέρα είτε με την αγάπη που βρίσκεται στο πεδίο της βαρύτητας,είτε με την αβάσταχτη ελαφρότητα στη ρευστότητα του κόσμου. Μου έμαθες απλά λιτά και απέριττα όποτε μπορώ να επιλέγω εγώ μια απο τις δυο ιδιότητες: βαρύτητα-ελαφρότητα. Αυτό το μυθιστόρημα π...

لا يوجد وصف حاضر في ذهني لا توجد كلمات تسعفني أشعر بالعجز التام كلما ارتأيت مفتاحا مناسبا للكتابة عن هذه التحفة خذلني قلمي أرتبك وأتحير وأتلعثم وأصمت وأصمت كثيرا أولم يقولوا "والصمت في حضرة الجمال جمال" تعلمني الرواية -نعم أقول تعلمني لا علمتني لأنها لاتزال للآن في دمي تعلمني أن أتواضع كثيرا أن أتعلم رؤية الع...

This book definitely wins the award for Most Pretentious Title Ever. People would ask me what I was reading, and I would have to respond by reading the title in a sarcastic, Oxford-Professor-of-Literature voice to make it clear that I was aware of how obnoxiously superior I sounded. Honestly, Kun...

I have a bone to pick with Kundera and his following. People, this has got to be the most over-rated book of human history. I mean, references to infidelity alone (even infidelity that makes use of funky costumes like '50s ganster hats--the only note-and-applauseworthy aspect this book!) do NOT m...

The Unbearable Lightness of Being was almost unbearable to read. There was a lot of pseudo-intellectual meandering about things that deserved a little more grit. Rather, I prefer a little more reality. I didn't care about the characters, and I didn't feel like they cared about anything. I feel li...
